JLG-T500J Replacing Hydraulic Hoses


New Member
Oct 13, 2022
I own a 2017 JLG-T500J towable lift. The unit works but the hydraulic hoses that run through the boom are showing signs of age (cracks starting to develop at the bend points). I know these hoses are available through JLG Parts. Has anyone done the replacement on their JLG towable lift themselves, and if so, was it difficult or anything tricky to it? Or should this job be left up to an authorized service center? Any advice would be appreciated.
